Fuel Tech awarded air pollution control orders totalling $2.2 million

Fuel Tech, Inc has announced the receipt of multiple air pollution control contracts from customers in the US and China.

These awards have an aggregate value of approximately $2.2 million.

An order was received in the US for an ULTRA® system that will be installed on a natural gas-fired unit in the West being retrofitted with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology. Fuel Tech’s ULTRA process provides for the safe and cost-effective on-site conversion of urea to ammonia for use as a reagent where SCR is used to reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx), eliminating the hazards associated with the transport, storage and handling of anhydrous or aqueous ammonia.

A second contract was received for a gas-fired utility unit in the West which will utilise Fuel Tech’s UDI™Urea Direct Injection to replace the existing reagent feed system for an existing SCR system. Respective equipment deliveries are scheduled for the first quarter of 2019 and the fourth quarter of 2018. Another order was received for an engineering study that has been completed to evaluate particulate control technologies from a utility in the Pacific Rim.

Two Chinese orders were received for ULTRA systems that will be installed on industrial units firing municipal solid waste being retrofitted with SCR technology. Delivery of these systems will be completed in the third quarter of 2018. Two additional contracts were received for NOxOUT® Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR) systems for units firing municipal solid waste. Deliveries for these systems will be completed by the third quarter of 2018. Fuel Tech’s SNCR technology is a proven solution as industrial combustion unit owners look to comply with more stringent NOx control requirements.

Vincent J. Arnone, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “These contracts demonstrate our ability to meet the on-going needs of our customer base and are a testament to our ability to deliver quality and performance. Our goal is to provide reagent flexibility by customising the best solution for SCR applications using urea-based ULTRA® technology, UDI™ Urea Direct Injection systems, or aqueous ammonia feed systems. We continue to provide a wide range of environmental and emissions control solutions to help our diverse global customer base meet their compliance needs.”
